The Hacienda at Rancho San Carlos – some good news!
You might remember that a couple of months ago we issued a Mid-Month Memo on the hacienda at Rancho San Carlos (here), in which we mentioned the rumour that the house had been damaged/destroyed during the recent Californian wildfires.
We’re delighted to tell you that an employee of the Santa Lucia Preserve, which encompasses the old rancho, tells us that the hacienda wasn’t affected by the wildfires. The house suffered a little collision damage recently to the porte-cochere at the front, but is otherwise in very good shape and in constant use with dinner served nightly, guests in residence, and events held weekly. You can follow the Preserve on Facebook or Instagram for current-day photos, including a Lancer-themed post from last month.
Stories marked with *** are older stories that we’ve just added to the Gateway archives. A final check of the old Peter Brown site revealed several stories that were listed on the Titles page, but not on the relevant author’s page, and so got missed on the transfer across. They’ve been added now – so enjoy them!
